History

Here are some photographs celebrating History at Corpus Christi School.

History at Corpus Christi

“How do you know who you are unless you know where you’ve come from?  How can you tell what’s going to happen, unless you know what’s happened before? History isn’t just about the past. It’s about why we are – and about what’s next,” Tony Robinson, Actor and TV Time Team Presenter.

History gives us a sense of identity, set within our social, political, cultural and economic relationships. The study of History fires children’s curiosity about the past in Britain and the world and also plays an essential part in preparing us for living and working in the world today. While history is about real people who lived in the past, its fundamental concern is the understanding of human conditions, set in the context of time. Corpus Christi subscribes to ‘key stage history’, which provides schemes of work, activity resources, interactive activities as well as assessments, which help teachers to plan and to implement the primary programme of study.
